“As an author, I always welcome the opportunity to publish with The Tax Lawyer, the outstanding peer-reviewed tax journal that reaches the widest possible audience of academics, practitioners, and government officials. The Tax Lawyer editors and staff are dedicated to ensuring publication in a timely manner of the highest quality articles, consistent with the publication’s commitment to serve the wider tax community and deepen understanding of significant tax issues.” —Karen Burke, University of Florida Levin College of Law
“The Tax Lawyer is unique among tax journals for its focus on cutting-edge practical long-form scholarship. It is the only publication whose editorial board consists both of deeply experienced practitioners and academics, and whose audience reflects the diversity of practice one finds in the ABA Tax Section.” —Bryan Camp, Texas Tech University School of Law
“The editors of The Tax Lawyer were amazingly helpful with their comments and their edits. My work product was certainly better for their participation. The process was not a rubber stamp. Even better, all of the comments were thoughtful and on point. Moreover, during the pandemic, I was worried about the editing process and demands for additional footnotes because making it to the library was difficult. But the editors of The Tax Lawyer made the process simple, straightforward, and clear. It was the smoothest editing process I have ever had, and I hope to work with them again.” —Stephanie Hunter McMahon, University of Cincinnati College of Law
Authors can submit articles either directly or through Scholatica.
